Review

Roma città aperta was Roberto Rossellini’srevelation, a harrowing drama about the Nazi occupation of Rome and the bravefew who struggled against it. Though told with more melodramatic flair than theother films that would form this trilogy and starring some well-known actors—AldoFabrizi as a priest helping the partisan cause and Anna Magnani in herbreakthrough role as the fiancée of a resistance member—Roma città apertais a shockingly authentic experience, conceived and directed amid the ruin ofWorld War II, with immediacy in every frame. Marking a watershed moment inItalian cinema, this galvanic work garnered awards around the globe and leftthe beginnings of a new film movement in its wake.

 

With a lecture about Neorealism and the Resistance, and aQ/A after the screening.
